My research interests include contemporary issues in disability, diversity and inclusion. I completed my PhD - "In our house we're not terribly sexual" : exploring the barriers to supporting intellectually disabled people in the area of sexuality and intimacy - in 2008. I have subsequently completed research studies in the area of sterilisation and intellectually disabled people. I have also published articles related to contemporary issues in policy and practice related to inclusive education for disabled students in New Zealand schools. My current research project - Narratives of Migration - involves working with migrant women who have left their country of origin, and have come to settle in New Zealand and Norway. This project is being undertaken in partnership with Associate Professor Sissel Sollied of the Arctic Univerity (UiT), in Tromsø, Norway.
Since 2012 I have been academic advisor for the Masters in Disability and Inclusion Studies (MDInS) programme. Graduating DInS students since 2013 have successfully completed the following studies:
